Although he was proficient at a number of wind instruments, Colin Cooper is best remembered as the lead singer and saxophonist for UK blues rock band, Climax Blues Band. Often included in lists of “one hit wonders,” Climax Blues Band had a big one with their 1976 release, “Couldn’t Get It Right.” The single landed in the Top 10 of the British singles charts and later, #3 on the US pop charts. It continues to receive significant airplay on U.S. classic rock stations to this day. Cooper died of cancer at the age of 68.
